The Humanities Research Centre (HRC) have announced the winners of their 2011 Doctoral Fellowship Competition.
The winners of the competition are each given a research budget of £400 and a conference budget of £600, and are invited to organise a one-day interdisciplinary conference during the following academic year.
This year's winners (and the conferences they will organise) are as follows:
- Katharina Karcher, German Studies, and Elizabeth Ramirez, Film and TV Studies
Beyond Experience: (Re)thinking Women, Violence and Trauma)
- Gabrielle Mearns, English and Comparative Literary Studies
Unplanned Wildernesses: Narrating the British Slum 1844 – 1951

The HRC Doctoral Fellowships are intended to enhance the winners' work on their PhDs. They can use their research budget for all reasonable expenses related to their PhD research. The conference budget is spent on organising a one-day conference on a topic close to the area of their dissertation, bringing together scholars working in their field.
